    I'm sorry I guess I don't get it.

    Why are you telling us about this on Saturday?

    Clearly this is to show us what amazing calls we'd have to look forward to upon subscribing to this service.

    I think tomorrow I'll list 10 stocks to buy on Monday. Monday after the close I'll highlight the 1 of 10 I got right. Then I'll start charging for this spectacularly successful service.

    I'm no discrediting anyone, hell what do I even know, it would be interesting to randomly pick say 5 stocks and wonder how they would compare to sites that are stock picker sites.

    I apologize for posting a gap play technique that has made me a lot of money over the years. I don't know what I was thinking. I used 'after the fact' charts to illustrate the trade, and you guys jump all over me. My only other 2 posts in here were 'before the fact' charts of TSN and ICO which both broke out like the charts suggested they might. Nobody in here replied to those. I can only conclude that this forum doesn't want any trading technique ideas nor does it want any charts posted with upcoming potential. I have obviously picked the wrong place to share ideas...but in my defense, I was misled by the title, 'OnlineTradersForum'. I'm done.

    I am newer to this forum and I am here to learn as much as I can, I didn't mean to offend or discredit you or your site by any means. I may have jumped the gun with my scarcastic remark and I apologize, and may have taken your post as a "Monday Morning Quarterback" situation. For a novice like myself and this next statement would be only from my point of view as I do not speak for everyone and or anyone else, but just a line saying perfect gap play and a link and nothing further might be misleading. I personally would like any further info or techniques to help me make money but also a little back up of why.

    You shouldn't judge the entire forum based on 1 or 2 snarky comments.

    Just because I'm a jerk doesn't mean that others aren't interested in your input.

    Your previous picks (TSN & ICO) were good calls. Perhaps the reason you received no feedback on these posts is because they lack insight into your choices. A graph saying that your opinion is that it might breakout may not be enough. It's hard to "share ideas" when an idea isn't provided to start the conversation.

    I understand that you might not want to divulge any "trade secrets," but I believe that some explaination would not hurt the bottom line of your business.

    Sorry if I get a bit snippy when I click a link and see testimonials followed by credit card graphics.

    Now who's being sarcastic?

    Your posts on TSN and ICO were excellent calls. I believe you have a good case for saying you haven't received the credit you deserved for those finds. They both broke out just as you suggested they would. Their gains surpassed the S&P500 gains for the time period. Well done and thank you!

    [Your very first post, a list of five ticker symbols, received criticism for being a little too cryptic. It seems you took that feedback to heart, because your subsequent posts included annotated charts.]

    By placing a link to your stock advisory site in your bio, you identify yourself as a professional. Let me be clear: I personally welcome professional posters. You folks are likely to be knowledgeable in trading. I figure I can learn from you.

    That said, many 'pros' are, unfortunately, predators. As a pro, surely you know that. Every new member needs to establish credibility — and the bar for a 'pro' is higher than the bar for a retail investor.

    [The Woody Allen line applies here: "...and the lamb shall lie down with the lion, but the lamb won't get much sleep."]

    So, when you post something on Saturday about how well you did on Friday, it raises the possibility of back-casting. I found your charts interesting and well commented. Still, I would have preferred at least an acknowledgment from you that this was 'after the fact' analysis. That's why I asked my question.

    With all of this, I hope you continue to post on the OTF.
    I'm certainly going to be looking at your 'breakout' charts with renewed interest. :fisheye:

    Give them a free trial, a couple of days to see if its worth it.

    Also offer a refund within in a limited period...I mean if I buy something at the store and I'm dissatisfied...I can take it back as long as I have the receipt. It's only fair.
